Picked up a used 2018 ES.

Enjoying the **** out of it.

What modifications should I be aware of?

Ravin,

Prolly the most common FJR mods are an upgraded (aftermarket) seat, windshield, handlebar risers, and fall bars/ sliders. Fall bars will cost less than one drop of the bike without them.

You might see some minor tweaks mentioned here and there, but I'd call most of them conveniences, not necessities. Keep in touch!

P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

thanks. came with a sargent seat and sliders, looking at the rear crash guards for putting on over the winter and a better shield no doubt.
